Somedays it is a struggle to get the girls to get up. Really, mostly just Ellie Sue. Gabbi typically pops right up. But then I have to struggle with Gabbi to get her out of the car and up to Miss Donna's house. She keeps saying, "Ona stay you." get that?!
But on swim day, I let them put their bathing suits on under their clothes. Then, we had on shorts and tee shirts, and thennnn, Ellie insisted on cover ups.
ANd in their bag, there were three pair of sunglasses ("one to share with Chloe"), two hats, and of course, their beach towels!
Gabbi is still having a time with keeping on flipflops. I found these pink ones in Key West (They're Sanuks!!), and thought they may be better. The heel straps aren't staying put with these either. Dang. She loves the idea of flip flops, but can't really keep them on.
We are looking forward to summer. We have beach plans, swimming probably daily when Mary Allison takes over babysitting duties for the summer (at our house), as we say goodbye to Miss Donna for a few months. I just thought I'd give them a break. And then, I have to decide on pre-K 4 vs. going back to Donna's. And do I separate them so Gabbi can stay with Donna while Ellie is at pre-K or do I send them both to a new place?! Oh, the decisions. Anybody got any advice on Pre-K? pro or con? Ellie is learning a lot at Donna's, just maybe not as intensely as she'd learn at a more structured daycare. She's a smart kid though, so I don't have much concern over her doing fine in kindergarten. (academically! I am still praying about behaviorally!! Ha!)
Catch ya on the flip flop.
